Buccal Fat Removal Recovery
You will be monitored in our recovery room after your surgery, but once you are cleared to leave, you will be able to return home to recover in peace. You are encouraged to have a friend or relative provide you with a ride home as you may still be under the influence of sedation.
Most patients find recovery to be generally easy and take about one or two days. You can expect to experience some mild pain/ soreness, which will subside after a few days. Your cheeks will appear slightly fuller during the first week but should return to their normal appearance within a week or so.
Swelling will continue to subside with your results starting to be seen as early as four weeks post-surgery, and then progressively improving for several months thereafter.
During recovery, it’s important to be careful not to bite down on the cheek area, so the incision can properly heal and sutures can dissolve. Pain medication can be prescribed and ice packs will help with swelling and discomfort.
